Even living in the state, I have never heard those two words

Said together.


That's understandable.

I doubt NE Ohio has much of an appetite for another losing franchise. I'm bullish on the Jackets though. They're young and physical, they play hard, they have three first-rounders in the upcoming draft, and the conference move should generate more regional interest.


Having Davidson running the show is a big plus as well.

Great place to watch a game. They're in a weird situation though. They could be going through a run like the Hawks just went on and still be page two news to anything going on with OSU sports.

It's a great place to watch a game in a cool area (bars, restaurants, etc.) I hope they can turn the corner.


There's more upside than that in terms of local interest...

...but it's impossible to say exactly how much when the extent of the franchise's brush with the postseason over their entire existance amounts to a solitary three-game sweep defeat.

I tend to think that they could be a very good draw (frankly, most people are not that devoted to OSU basketball), but after what they've put everyone through for the past decade-plus, they're going to need to prove it over 3-to-5 years of sustained success.
